My name is Naman, Senior Lifecycle Marketing Manager at Vena.
With the shift in remote and hybrid work environments over the last few years, I'd like to know how everyone has planned their OpEx with these changes.
As a friendly reminder, there's a demo session next week on Friday, March 4, 2022 from 1–2 PM EST where Vena Expert and Solutions Consultant Evan Short will walk through how Vena can help create more accurate forecasts with driver-based calculations for common operating expenses. Be sure to RSVP here!
For additional reading, I'd recommend perusing this blog post.
I wanted to bring back this thread and compare the responses from a few months ago to now. It's interesting to look back at previous conversations and see how things have changed in your organization, or for yourself professionally.
How has planning for the return to office compared to the execution?
Is the return to office something you continue to plan for in your #OPEX or has something new come up in your organization and now need to plan for?
Please share your thoughts, I'm curious to know!
And, while we're here, I'd like to remind everyone that next week on August 23, we have a Vena with Evan demo on OPEX! Tune in to learn how to create more accurate forecasts with driver-based calculations. Be sure to RSVP here and share your questions and thoughts in this thread.
Thank you again to everyone who attended yesterday's Vena with Evan on OpEx. I hope the demo brought some new insights and inspired you all with your Vena instance.
I wanted to follow up with some of the questions asked during the event by answering them here in the Forum. If you have any other questions be sure to ask them below and to check back in the Forum regularly for Q&As!
Is there a way to get the "side model" to stay. My experience has been that once this is checked back in, all new sheets are deleted.
Yes, you can have your template set up as a Hybrid, Standalone, or central template. See Knowledge base for more information.
Do you have a way to track contract labor separate from employees, but have the ability to consolidate?
Yes, you can classify contract employees differently from regular employees, and consolidate the totals based on the view you require.
How do you add a new account?
You can add new accounts through the modeler tab. New accounts will also automatically get added if data flows in from your source system.
Does everyone have access to Vena 365?
Yes this is available for all who have access to Microsoft Office 365.
Will it dynamically pull in new accounts that do NOT have a balance or no transaction posted to this account yet?
Templates can be set up to pull in all accounts or accounts that have balances. These are settings that can be set up when mapping your templates.
For "years", is there capability to add fiscal years and have data analyzed by that rather than calendar year periods?
Yes, you can have various hierarchies set up to allow for different views of financial information.
